New Giants Fan

Danelle and I took our fathers to a Giants game against the Dodgers. It was a beautiful day, unfortunately the Giants lost but everyone had a good time.

I’ve already converted Danelle to a Giants fan, at least when they aren’t playing the Angels. I think her Pops is on his way to becoming a fan too.




Spring Time!

This week marks our one-year anniversary in the house. We’re testing our green thumbs now with some gardening, a little limited on space due to a certain four-legged enemy to plants. Hopefully his chewing and wanton destruction is only a puppy phase, unfortunately it may last up to 2-years old. Our first planting is to attempt a salsa garden, we planted three types of tomatoes, two types of peppers, cilantro and a few other herbs. We can’t wait until summer and it all starts coming in. Fresh salsa on us!

Also it looks like we didn’t end up killing any of our flowers, they all survived the winter. We even planted some tulips, which were from Matt and Karen’s wedding and they came up beautiful!







Introductions, Blessings and Giving Thanks!

Marcus’ brother and family came out from Washington D.C. for the baptism of their daughter Kasia and Thanksgiving. It was the first time Danelle met the whole family, his wife Amada and Marcus’ godson Aleksander. The baptism was beautiful, Mike is the Godfather for Kasia and Mom was standing in for Amada’s sister as Godmother.

For Thanksgiving Marcus made a delicious pumpkin soup and a skillet apple pie, I prepared a green bean casserole. All the food was scrumptious and Marcus’ dessert was a hit! We enjoyed the time with the family and have so much to be thankful for this year. Peace and love this holiday season!

Happy Halloween!

Our first Halloween at our new house! We had fun decorating, carving pumpkins and handing out candy to the trick-or-treaters. After living in the city for many years, it was the first time in the long time for us to get any kids. We got a good many, but still have lots of candy left over.

Kingston got into the excitement and dressed up, too; he was a little red devil. He did a good job wearing his cape, but he didn’t like to wear the horns.





Introducing the newest member of our family, Kingston! We picked up the little guy on Tuesday and immediately fell for him, he is such a sweetheart. Also a little bit of a terror and a handful, but such a cutie. He’s a Vizsla, also known as the Hungarian Pointer, 10-weeks old and weighs about 20lbs.
